Franz Ferdinand & Sparks share "Piss Off" from collaborative FFS album which is out in June
Apr 1, 2015 8:55am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Franz Ferdinand and Sparks have details on their collaborative FFS album. That self-titled LP (cover art above) will be out June 9 via Domino and you can check out the tracklist below. (Preorders are available.) While the LP's official single will be released later this month, FFS have shared "Piss Off," which sounds pretty much like what you'd expect, with Sparks' cheeky theatricality and Franz Ferdinand's oomph. They work well together and you can stream it below.

We Took The Mountain Goats John Darnielle To His First Pro Wrestling Show In 35 Years
Apr 1, 2015 8:55am | StereoGum
In the crowd at a middle-of-nowhere North Carolina show, an earnest and bearded young man approaches John Darnielle, the Mountain Goats frontman. The young man slides in next to Darnielle, briefly and respectfully praising his music. This is nothing new. Young men in dark rooms have been approaching Darnielle for a couple of decades, and Darnielle's music has meant a great deal to thousands of us. What happens next, however, is new.

Hot Chip Atomic Bomb (John Talabot Remix) (William Onyeabor Cover)
Apr 1, 2015 8:51am | StereoGum
Two years ago, David Byrne's Luaka Bop label put out a compilation of old tracks from the little-known African synth artist William Onyeabor. Last year, some of those songs were reimagined for a remix album, including a cover from Hot Chip of the 1978 track "Atomic Bomb." And earlier today, John Talabot shared his remix of Hot Chip's cover of the original track. (Phew!) The description on the Soundcloud page says that this is part of a larger release that will be out on Record Store Day in April 2018, but it's unclear if that's just a little bit of an April Fool's Day joke about the long lead time for RSD releases, or an accurate timetable. Listen to the track below.

Grimes Announces U.S. Tour With Lana Del Rey
Apr 1, 2015 8:46am | StereoGum
Grimes and Lana Del Rey are two of the most popular, polarizing, unmistakably unique figures in popular music, so in that sense they make perfect touring partners. On the other hand: What the hell?! Today's announcement that Grimes will open for Del Rey's summer North American tour dates is weird enough that Grimes had to include a disclaimer that this is not an April Fool's Joke. Should be some wild shows! Check out the dates above and below.

Watch A Locked-In Alt-J Play Every Other Freckle On The Tonight Show
Apr 1, 2015 8:40am | StereoGum
On Monday night, Alt-J played Madison Square Garden and sold it out, which is crazy. And last night, they did musical-guest duty on The Tonight Show. On Jimmy Fallon's stage, all four members lined up at the front of the stage, giving a visual cue that this is the type of band where all of them are equal contributors. And they sure seemed to share the same wavelength, working up the intricate groove of "Every Other Freckle," the best song on their 2014 album This Is All Yours. Watch the performance below.

Judas Priest are getting their own blend of British Steel coffee
Apr 1, 2015 8:39am | Brooklyn Vegan

Win Butler's not the only musician with his own coffee blend this year. Metal Gods Judas Priest are celebrating the 35th anniversary of their legendary British Steel album by teaming up with Dark Matter Coffee to present their new "ultimate hesher" blend of the same name on April 14. Here are the details:

The Great Halls of Metal were fashioned by Judas Priest - in their studs and leather with everything faster, heavier - guitars, amps, power - blazing around the planet - higher, louder... SOARING in EPIC PROPORTIONS! Their all out sonic attack cemented their place as the firebrand for British Heavy Metal. Does anything cut as deep as British Steel? NO! The songs comprising this landmark record yielded both monumental commercial success, capturing the attention of the broader uninitiated ... while also producing anthems to those already deeply enmeshed in a turbo charged new genre. Priest unleashed this razor sharp maelstrom onto the collective consciousness and we've thankfully never been the same since! Instantly recognizable for their peerless attack, the fuel for this inexorable juggernaut must be both ebullient and unremitting. The brewed crude sparkles cup after cup, sin after sin. Death to False Coffee.
The site specifies that it's sold by whole bean as default, unless you request it ground. A coffee grinder is not included, though a cassingle of the Judas Priest song "Grinder" (and "Snakebite") is, while supplies last.

You can listen to it and check out a tracklist for The Shakes below.

Watch Van Halen & David Lee Roth Bust Out Hot For Teacher & Eruption On Kimmel
Apr 1, 2015 8:17am | StereoGum
Two nights ago, for the first time in decades, Van Halen played songs on TV with David Lee Roth singing for them. Jimmy Kimmel Live shut down Hollywood Boulevard so the band could play in all their appropriately tacky neon glamor. And last night, they did it again. For the second night in a row, the band played a few of their classics on that stage. And while David Lee Roth is barely even a musician anymore, his gristly middle-aged presence makes him seem even more like the beach-bum scumbag he always portrayed on record. To watch him madly chewing gum and freestyling anecdotes about the band's club days mid-song is to behold a man who truly does not give a fuck about anything. On last night's show, the band played their horndog masterpiece "Hot For Teacher" and their cover of the Kinks' "You Really Got Me," a song that I thought was a Van Halen song for at least a few of my childhood years. In between, Eddie Van Halen busted out "Eruption," his absurdly virtuosic wheedly-guitar instrumental, and that was something to behold. check out the performances below.

Van Halens David Lee Roth needed 14 stitches after injuring nose on Kimmel, but finished the concert anyway watch
Apr 1, 2015 8:10am | Cosequence Of Sound

A little over 24 hours ago, Jimmy Kimmel Live hosted a most historic music event: the US TV debut of Van Halen with original lead vocalist David Lee Roth front and center. Last night, the iconic rockers returned for round two, capping off their Kimmel residency with electrifying performances of “Eruption” and “You Really Got Me” from Hollywood Boulevard. Catch the replay below.

As Kimmel explained prior to the band’s performance, Roth injured his nose while twirling his mic stand during the concert. He was treated by the show’s medic and returned to the stage to finish the set. Afterward, however, he was taken to an area hospital where he received 14 stitches.

Van Halen’s two-day Kimmel stint comes in support of Tokyo Dome Live in Concert, the band’s first-ever live album featuring Roth, which is out this week. In support, this summer, they will hit the road for their first North American tour in three years.
